I am talking about following question

Fill SVG only if existing fill colour is certain value

I am quite sure that the OP had accepted my answer (you can see his comment underneath my answer) but after sometime the accepted answer has been changed and now Robert Longson's answer has been accepted.

Now I want to know who has changed this and should not I get a notification with a reason?

Can I get a question specific summary?

    Maybe by "question specific summary" you mean this?

  • @bfavaretto Woah, is there a way to easily see a timeline like this for any question? Or do you have to edit the URL every time?

  • @p.s.w.g There's no link that I know of, you have to edit the URL.

  • @p.s.w.g - It's an expensive query, and that level of detail is not generally necessary, so it's a "hidden" feature.

  • @p.s.w.g it was suggested and declined to add such link, just edit the URL manually by changing "/questions" to "/posts" and adding "/timeline" after the ID. Sep 3, 2013 at 23:02
  • @bfavaretto this(stackoverflow.com/posts/18590985/timeline) is exactly what i want and now i think i know how to get it

The question asker can change the accepted answer to their question at their own discretion, or even unaccept an answer without reaccepting. You already get a "notification" by way of losing the 15 rep you were previously awarded with the acceptance, but the asker isn't obliged to tell you their reason for accepting another answer over yours.

No idea what you mean by "question specific summary".

  • it is not about reputation it is just you should get atleast a notification

    @Dhaval: You don't get a notification when your answer is accepted, so why should you get a notification when your answer is unaccepted? Sep 3, 2013 at 18:44

    Unaccepts already appear in your reputation history.

  • @Dhaval - Why? Of what use would that information be to you?

    @Dhaval - Notifications on accepted answers would be a horrible idea. Imagine how full Jon Skeets inbox would be :O

  • User vote should be able to re-accept an answer. There are so many cases on this website where a mediocre answer is accepted above a very good one below Nov 10, 2016 at 17:23
